Stemmer Imaging has added new Teledyne Dalsa Genie and Piranha4 camera models to its product portfolio, along with Allied Vision Technologies’ (AVT) Goldeye short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras.

The 5 megapixel Genie TS-M2560 industrial camera is based on an Anafocus Lince 5M monochrome CMOS sensor, which has a resolution of 2,560 x 2,048 pixels and a global shutter. In-sensor calibration allows for on-chip processing and photo correction at the sensor level to generate images of the highest quality.

Speeds of up to 51fps at full resolution can be achieved in ‘fast mode’, and even higher frame rates in partial scan mode. The Genie TS camera family can capture multiple regions of interest (ROI), significantly reducing the amount of data transferred and simultaneously allowing systems to focus on events that are critical to the inspection.

The Genie TS-M2560 monochrome camera is suitable for a wide range of challenging inspection applications including intelligent traffic systems (ITS), entertainment, medical, food and beverage inspection, and electronics and printed circuit board (PCB) inspection.

Two new additions to the range of Piranha4 line scan cameras from Teledyne Dalsa feature improved CMOS image sensor technology to deliver line rates up to 200kHz together with outstanding signal-to-noise.

Offering 2k pixel resolution and available in monochrome and colour versions, the new cameras feature advanced chipsets to deliver high throughput with extended Camera Link cable lengths to 30 metres. Both cameras can operate at any angle to the web, providing greater flexibility for vision system designs. Advanced features include lens and shading correction, and flat field correction.

The new monochrome Piranha4 is a dual line scan camera which can operate in Time Delay Integration (TDI) mode for enhanced sensitivity and signal-to-noise, especially for low light level operation. A maximum line rate of 100kHz is available in TDI mode, while line rates of 200kHz are possible in area mode operation. Applications include railway inspection, printing, wood, film, and label inspection, and general machine vision applications.

Finally, AVT’s Goldeye infrared industrial camera series features a compact housing and has excellent image quality for industrial applications. Goldeye cameras offer sensitivity in the 900 to 1,700nm wavelength range.

The Goldeye is based on a VGA InGaAs sensor stabilised with TEC1 peltier cooling. The first model in the range is the Goldeye G-032 SWIR, which features a highly sensitive InGaAs sensor with 640 x 512 pixel resolution and frame rates up to 100fps. More models will be added during 2014.

The rugged hardware is designed for the tough requirements of industrial machine vision. The built-in sensor cooling works without a fan and the screwed interface port allows for a secure connection. The ultra-compact form factor fitting screw threads on all sides make the integration into an industrial vision system particularly easy. With its 12-pin Hirose I/O port, the Goldeye opens many possibilities for trigger and synchronisation with other system components.

The new Goldeye features a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface and supports Power over Ethernet. The camera can be fitted with various filters and lenses with C-, F- and M42-mounts.
